Is Die Hard a Christmas Movie? Let’s ask Azure!

When it comes to popular Christmas movies there’s a recurring debate as to whether or not that list of movies should include the 1988 film Die Hard. This talk explores the use of Azure Automated Machine Learning (Auto ML) to build a classification algorithm that can evaluate movies to determine if they should be considered a Christmas movie. We’ll explore taking our raw data, cleaning and preparing it without introducing bias, building, training, and evaluating a machine learning model. By the time we’re done you’ll understand the basics of automated machine learning on Azure and see what it thinks about Die Hard.
